Limited costume budget? When the 2015 Oscars returned from a commercial break halfway through the show, host Neil Patrick Harris was “forced” to strip down to his undies, imitating the scene from nominated film Birdman on Sunday, Feb. 22.

In Harris’ spoof, he walked through the halls of the Dolby Theatre, as photographers took his picture. Playing drums in the background was Whiplash star Miles Teller. When Harris passed him, he jokingly cut him off, saying, “Not my tempo” — which was the line of Best Supporting Actor winner J.K. Simmons’ Whiplash character Terence Fletcher.
